"The C90 Mak is a fantastic grab-n-go scope for astronomy. The scope comes with a factory installed vixen style mount for astro mounts, but is also tapped for use with a photo tripod providing the ultimate in flexibility. The unit provides tack sharp images and is great for lunar and planetary viewing. For astro use, I replaced the 45 degree prism with a 90 degree optional star diagonal to maximize performance. The scope is so light that when mounted to my photo tripod and video head, I can carry the whole set up outside in one trip. 90mm aperture provides enough light gathering for planetary and lunar viewing while keeping cool down time to a minimum."
